Manufacturers Better Benefit Using Microsoft Dynamics


Eric Kimberling managing partner at Panorama Consulting Solutions, an independent ERP consulting firm, published a white paper recently that corroborates Microsoft’s expertise and our primary purpose of putting clients first in implementing Microsoft Dynamics AX or Microsoft Dynamics NAV to offer better business solutions.

According to a recent survey, most manufacturers still rely solely on Excel spreadsheets for their business needs. This is astonishing considering there are better options.  The white paper by Panorama discusses the top ERP options delineating the fact that Microsoft has the highest market share in manufacturing.  Reason being manufacturers have unique and complex business requirements that aren’t well met by all ERP vendors. (Click the link above to read the white paper).

According to Eric’s white paper:

While the manufacturing industry is similar to all industries in terms of vendor market share and implementation duration, manufacturing ERP implementations are more likely to go over budget, cost more and have a higher cost-to-revenue ratio. Although manufacturing firms tend to implement fewer modules than organizations across all industries, the cost of manufacturing ERP implementations is still significantly higher. The complexity of manufacturing processes and the level of customization and integration required often lead to higher implementation costs.

In researching and reading about ERP solutions, and partners, one can become anxious because of failed implementations and budget over-runs.  But be assured that of all the 70+ Microsoft Dynamics AX implementations and 100+ NAV implementations that Clients First has done, most have been delivered on time, and within budget. 

Clients First accomplishes this by listening to our clients business issues. We respond by leveraging the power of an ERP solution in solving the initial problems and then delving deeper in the discovery process answering any additional concerns found.
